There are a limited number of spots available on a first come, first serve basis**. Sign up now and come learn with us!

This session : Coding Café

Building on our introduction to computational thinking, this workshop is for those who want to discover more about block coding. This drop-in format evening (come when you want, leave when you want!) will include a variety of stations to explore free coding apps such as Scratch, ScratchJR, Twine and Processing as well as coding concepts such as pair programming. We will also be offereing 20 minute introductions to a variety of applications throughout the evening. This is a beginner friendly workshop! We will have staff on hand to answer questions and to help you debug your code. Bring your device (tablet or computer) and come learn to code with us!

Enseignants francophones et d'immersion: Il y aura une équipe sur place pour répondre à vos questions en français. Les ressources partagées seront aussi offertes en français.

**Please note, we will require a minimum number of participants to run these workshops. Sessions will be cancelled the day before the event if there are not enough registrations. If a workshop fills up, participants that are on a waitlist will be alerted the day prior to the event of any openings.

Please note : Each session is based on Science World’s professional development offerings for teachers. Contact us if you’re interested in Science World delivering a particular session for staff at your school.
